  • Dear Highlands Early Childhood Families,

    I would like to introduce myself as the principal of Highlands Early Childhood Center. Prior to my promotion, I served as the Assistant Principal at Highlands Elementary School beginning October of 2018. While there, I had the opportunity to develop relationships with students, staff, and the community while deepening our commitment to teaching and learning.

    Along with teachers and staff, I aspire to be a hands-on leader that partners with students, parents, and the community to build a strong foundation for our youngest learners. My desire is to provide our children with high quality education in every classroom every day while also promoting social-emotional learning experiences to prepare them for future success. I strongly believe in the importance of working to build a strong foundation for every child. This is done through commitment, perseverance, and collaboration.

    In closing, I would like to welcome you to the 2022-2023 school year and begin building our partnership. I eagerly look forward to working with you and your child(ren) this year. Please know I value your partnership and communication to ensure the success of all children every day.
